Lake Forest Kitchen Update

It’s hard to believe that this Lake Forest Kitchen Update used to be oak cabinetry, granite countertops and a travertine backsplash. It has been transformed into a classic white Kitchen with “marble-like” quartz countertops and handmade backsplash tile. It has a fresh feel while remaining classic in style. The gray quartz composite sink helps break up the white.


The Laundry Room got a fresh look by painting the oak cabinetry black and replacing the formica with a quartz remnant and undermount sink. The quartz worked perfectly with the existing tile floor.


My favorite update was to the fireplace surround. We got a huge bang for our buck with this Calcutta marble tile in a herringbone pattern. We replaced the builder grade tile hearth with marble tile that complements the surround.

The moral of the story is that you can change the entire look of your home by updating your finishes and little changes go a long way…like a fireplace surround or small countertop in the Laundry Room. You can get that new home feel without having to move!
